Malaysia flag When preparing to travel, you may ask yourself: Do I need a passport or visa to enter Malaysia? The short answer about the passport is always, “Yes.” But a visa is not always necessary. If your trip is less than 90 days, it isn’t required. When preparing to travel to Malaysia, double check the expiration date of your current passport if you have one. It must remain valid for at least for 6 months after arrival. If it will expire within that time, or come close, it’s best to get it renewed. Occasionally there’s a need for additional stamps in your passport. So ensure you have at least one blank page remaining for use. Vaccinations may be required for entry please consult with your medical professional for more information. If you are planning an extended trip and expect to carry more than $10,000 with you, be aware that upon entry and exit, the amount will need to be declared to customs.
